This application paper demonstrates the capabilities ofmultispectral remote sensing images on detecting oil spillsand underwater natural oil outflows in oil potential areas.An object based method for oil spill detection using high orvery high multispectral images has been developed. Themethod exploits the knowledge provided by the systematicphoto‐interpretation of the temporal, spectral and spatialfeatures of the high or very high resolution multispectraldatasets. The developed method has... Topics: Multispectral, Hyperspectral, Oil Spills, Oil Outflow, Obia
In this NASA video segment learn how oil spills affect our planet. Toxins in oil cling to animals and plants suffocating them. During and after large oil spills, the EPA and Coast Guard map the location. Weather and current data is used to predict the path of the oil. Color animation is used to help support this segment. Topics: environment, oil spills, toxins, EPA, Coast Guard, weather, data

Dr. Riki Ott spoke with us on Shades of Green about the Exxon Valdez oil spill 25 years ago and her new award-winning film Black Wave. She has authored many books including "Sound Truth and Corporate Myth$: The Legacy of the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill", and "Not One Drop: Promises, Betrayal, and Courage in the Wake of the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill". Dr. Ott was one of the first on the tragic scene in the Prince William Sound, Alaska after the Exxon Valdez spilled over 750,000...
